dryknife: Quadroon, octoroon and quintroon still OK to use?
a particular individual: zzrhardy: I used the word "nubianrdly" to describe a problem in one of our tech meetings and about half the peoples heads turned sideways with a "?".After the meeting I looked it up - it is a much older word than the N bomb and has Norse origins so is unrelated. Kinda dropped it from my vocab regardless.Nubian, please.
Son of Thunder: and I had to google "jigaboo".
a particular individual: Wasn't there a Jigaboo Barbie® ?
olddinosaur: Yes, and I am so positively, certainly sure, no black person anywhere has ever used any disparaging term for a white person, not at any time in his life.\\\ Double standard as usual.
Coco LaFemme: Of course he didn't know it was an offensive term....why, that's every racist's first line of defense. If that one doesn't work, they move to the 2nd tier of bullshiat, which is, "I can't be racist, I have a ___________ friend/co-worker/family member/neighbor!" The 3rd tier is pure deflection; "You're the real racist for saying I'm racist! Only a racist would know that was a racist term." The 4th and rarely reached tier is acceptance; "Yes, I said something offensive. I'm sorry for being an ignorant clown in the year 2013."Let's see which tier he lands on next.
Lionel Mandrake: The term "jigaboo" is about heritage, not hate.
2wolves: "Dead honky"
